When Democrats celebrated Obama’s ‘triumph’ in getting rid of Syrian chemical weapons

 “You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.”  ~George W. Bush

Despite being humiliated by backing down on his pledge to initiate military action against Syria if they used chemical weapons, Democrats celebrated the removal of WMD from Syria by Russia as a triumph for President Obama.

What do you suppose they’re thinking today following the largest poison gas attack by Syria against civilians last week?

Washington Free Beacon:

Rewind back to the fall of 2013, when the Obama administration was working with Syrian and Russian leaders to ensure that Assad’s stockpile of chemical weapons would be turned over and destroyed. A deal was reached, and the Obama administration and fellow Democrats applauded the achievement. The deal was reached after President Barack Obama drew his now infamous “red-line,” where he threatened military action against Assad if he used chemical weapons.

For several years, Democratic lawmakers and Obama administration officials touted that Syria turned over “100 percent” of its chemical weapon stockpile.

“It turns out we are getting chemical weapons out of Syria without initiating a strike,” Obama said.

“We struck a deal where we got a hundred percent of the chemical weapons out,” then Secretary of State John Kerry said.

The Obama White House even tweeted out a statement promoting their achievement.

In May 2015, Bloomberg reported that Assad used chemical weapons after the Obama administration declared that Syria turned over all their chemical weapon stockpile. Obama dismissed the report and said that chlorine isn’t “historically” considered a chemical weapon.

After the report, Obama administration officials continued to say that Syria turned over all their chemical weapons. Then White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and said four times that Assad didn’t have a chemical weapon stockpile. “Right now, Bashar al-Assad doesn’t have a declared chemical weapon stockpile,” Earnest said in September 2015.

Only a liberal Democrat could tout the total humiliation of a president who failed utterly to follow through on his given word and take out Syria’s WMD.

President Trump rightly blamed the president’s failure to enforce his red line for the brutal gas attack last week. While observers have yet to discover precisely what gas was used. experts on the ground are saying that chlorine wasn’t the only substance deployed and that perhaps sarin gas was part of the attack.

And we were supposed to trust these people when it came to calling out Iran for cheating on the nuclear deal?

Why Did Assad Use Nerve Gas?


“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Evidence Calls Western Narrative About Syrian Chemical Attack Into Question

The April 4th, 2017 incident at Khan Sheikhoun has provoked an emotional response around the world after images began to emerge showing civilian adults and children apparently suffering from the effects of chemical weapons. President Donald Trump has stated that the attack has totally changed his views towards the Syrian civil war, and may alter his intended strategy there.

Although Western media immediately accused Bashar al-Assad of participating in a gas attack against his own people, the evidence indicates that the intended target was not immediately in a civilian area and was in fact a location where Syrian White Helmets were on the scene with rebel groups at what observers have claimed was a storage facility for conventional and chemical munitions. Additionally, evidence indicates that rebel groups may have had prior knowledge of the attack and knew that there was a risk of chemical weapons being unleashed. The attack also came in the aftermath of a trip by Senator John McCain to meet with groups known to associate with radical jihadist factions in Syria, at a time when the United States government has been engulfed in a power struggle between different political factions who disagree strongly over what should be appropriate policy in regards to the Syrian civil war.

Evidence which has emerged in the aftermath of the attack at Khan Sheikhoun indicates that not only was the nature of the attack misreported by the media, but that certain individuals on the ground in Syria may have had foreknowledge of the attack up to several days before it happened. On April 3rd, 2017, an anti-Assad journalist tweeted that the next day he would be launching a media campaign to cover airstrikes on the Hama countryside, including the use of chemical weapons. […]

The Syrian Gas Attack Persuasion

According to the mainstream media – that has been wrong about almost everything for a solid 18 months in a row – the Syrian government allegedly bombed its own people with a nerve agent.

[…]

And right when things in Syria were heading in a positive direction.

* Interesting timing.
* Super-powerful visual persuasion designed for Trump in particular.
* Suspiciously well-documented event for a place with no real press.
* No motive for Assad to use gas to kill a few dozen people at the cost of his entire regime. It wouldn’t be a popular move with Putin either.
* The type of attack no U.S. president can ignore and come away intact.
* A setup that looks suspiciously similar to the false WMD stories that sparked the Iraq war.

Neither of these articles tells us exactly what evidence, other than clinical signs point to a nerve agent. Sarin, a nerve agent has been used in the area before, and is the most probable candidate for this episode as well. Presumably samples of blood, urine, sweat, and environmental samples have been collected. Hopefully they have been sent to an international lab for outside verification and for additional proof of the chemical or chemicals involved in this incident.  – Mod.TG
